How do I nicely say, ah, your dog, which is at our house, is not welcome at our house?

We have some friends staying with us tonight. They’ve just texted me to say they’re here, and they’ve brought their dog and they hope that’s OK. It’s not OK. How can I gently and tactfully communicate that I’m cool with it this time, I guess, seeing as it’s here, but would prefer the dog stay outside during this visit and that future visits are pet free?

What are the main differences between a Birman and a Ragdoll cat? We are looking for a nice family cat and we have a seven year old. We are looking for a breed that has blue eyes, and is warm and affectioniate like a dog. I have heard that Ragdoll's tend to get really big, that is one thing I'm not sure we want.

My cat was drinking mosquitos?

I just found what looks like mosquito larvae in my cat's water bowl. I use one of those automatic waterers where there is a gallon or so of water in a upside down container, feeding a small bowl of perhaps 2 cup capacity. In the large upside down container, there was actually one live, flying mosquito. In the small bowl that my cat actually drinks from, there were approximately a dozen apparent larvae, about 1/4" to 1/3" in length. Should I be concerned for my pet's health at all? I am not sure how long they were in there, but I changed the water for fresh immediately.

Prevent dog from hiding under bed

My wife & I adopted/rescued a daschund recently who doesn't respond well to men. While we're trying to get the dog accustomed to me, we have problems where the dog will hide under our king-sized bed when my wife is out of town and I cannot lure it out. I've tried positive reinforcement, treats, and trying to grab it and gently guide the dog from its hiding place. [more inside]
